To the Student Body of the Alliance High School:
The close of school draws near. Your work for the year has been done. What the high school has done this year—the standard of scholarship maintained, the hearty spirit of co-operation between faculty and students retained, and the enlarging of that unswerving loyalty to the commendable spirit which puts the welfare of the high school always the first thing to be considered —these are largely the result of your endeavor; and you have reason to take pride in what has been accomplished.
It is greatly to be hoped that every one of you who are undergraduates will return to the high school next year to carry forward the splendid movements to which you have been a party this year.
W. R. PATE.THE SPUI)
With the season 1913-’14 was the High School periodical resumed -with the following staff, elected by the faculty, in charge:
Editor in Chief Julia Frankie, '14
Associate Editor Dorothy Smith, ’15
Business Manager Max Wilcox, ’14
Assistant Business Mgr. Bernard Holsten, ’15 Subscription Manager Michael Nolan, ’14 Asst. Subscription Manager Nell Tash, ’15 Organization Editor Vernon Hamilton, ’17 Exchange Editor Marion Mote, ’16
Athletic Editor David Beach, ’15
Paul Thomas, Helen Hewett, Edna Donavon, and Lydia Hunzicker were elected by their respective classes and May Nation, ’14 editor of Chapel Notes, Hattie Renswold, ’14, assistant of the Organization Editor; and the Staff Artists Edna Bowman ’16 and Mary Baker '15 were appointed by the Staff.
What work has been accomplished by these students is left to the reader to discern and the student-body to appreciate.
After one year’s activity and pronounced success, the publication had been dropped owing to failure of support and it was not without misgivings that the Staff entered upon its duties in October.
They feel satisfied to recognize their work in completion as a good beginning for an important phase of High School Advertisement and they leave with the production of their labors a most sincere hope that this endeavor may be successfully shouldered each coming year with the enthusiasm and ardor expedient to a prosperous issue.

. LT Te. of 1914 lnstituted a precedent for the graduating classes of the High School in the establishment of Class Day.
A class day was granted the Seniors May 14, and with their Sponsor they held festivities in the form of a picnic at one of the groves near Alliance. That day, being one of the last the class enjoyed together will long remain fixed in the memories of the participants.
One week later Class Day Exercises were held in the High School Auditorium, only the relatives and friends of the graduates being present.
The following programme was rendered most impressively by the members of the class:

Ignorant Butcher—Mrs. Putton-Ayres had picked up a few French phrases which she worked into her talk on every possible occasion. Entering the butcher shop one day, she inquired if he had any “bon vivant.”
“Boned what, ma’am?” asked the butcher, puzzled.
“Bon vivant,” she repeated. “That’s the French for good liver, you know.”—Boston Transcript.

“The ’Varsity Coach”
May 19, 1914
On the evening of May 19, the college play “THE VARSI1 COACH” was given at the Opera House, with the following cast:
Robert Selby—Assistant coach of “Varsity Crew”.Michael Nolan
Mousie Kent—Typical fussy student “dig”..................Paul Thomas
Howard Dixon—Bob’s room-mate......................Max W ilcox
Dick Ellsworth—Member of the crew............Ralph Lotspeich
Chester Allen—His room-mate.................Clarence Shaefer

Miss Serena Selby—Bob’s maiden aunt............Grace Johnston

Ethel Lynn—Pretty college girl............................May Nation
Daisy Doane—Fashionable boarding school girl......Avis Joder
Marne Brady.............................................Edith Rowley
Marjorie Craig..........................................Helen Putman
Helen Dixon.......................................Ruth Glau
Robert Selby’s awakening during his Junior year at University is cleverly brought about by the artful management of his sweetheart Ruth Moore, who also points out to Mousie Kent a means of acquiring friends at college and in the end is the means of his broadening into an admirable college professor who chooses Genevieve Allen as “Mrs.” Professor.
Bob’s aunt Serena has her greatest hopes realized when at the close of his school life he is awarded the college opera prize and the play ends with his asking Ruth to star in the leading part.
Needless to say, the play was well received, especially since the characters were portrayed with unusual ability—for 1914 has always stood on a pedestal of her own.THE SPUD
The Juniors tendered the graduates an excellently appointed banquet in the High School Gymnasium May 2.
After the girls of the class of 1916 had attenuated the appetites with the serving of a most delectable five-course menu, the following toasts were given, Mary Baker acting as toastmistress.
The Dear Boy Graduates......Dorothy Smith
The Sweet Girl Graduates....Elting Bennett
Our Alma Mater............Hattie Renswold
Spizzerinctum ...............Michael Nolan
Our Faculty.................Julia Frankie
Our Gretna Green.......................Max Wilcox
The Maroon and Cream......Orville Davenport
The recollection of the old gymnasium in its adornment of maroon and cream and its illumination of good fellowship will be a lasting one in the minds of both the hosts of 1915 and the guests of 1914.
The much earned and certainly deserved praise was shown better by the evening’s enjoyment than by any proffered words on the part of those present.
Latin Club Entertain Seniors
The High School Latin Club, having conceived the novel idea of entertaining the Seniors carried out their plan in a very commendable manner on April 17th, at the home of Dorothy Smith.
The Baccalaureate Address was delivered by Reverend Dean George Garbett Ware of the St. Matthews Episcopal Church on the evening of Sunday, May 17.
The Graduates were addressed by Chancellor Avery of the Nebraska University on May the 22nd.
The same occasion saw the presentation of diplomas by Superintendent W. R. Pate of the City Schools of Public Instruction.IS.

The Junior-Class of 1915 have contributed much to the success of this season 1913-14.
Having had our number increased by the entrance of Hazel Sheldon, Irma Lotspeich, and Roy Armstrong, besides the return of Elting Bennett and Lura Hawkins, we are now about 35 strong.
We have furnished representatives for every High School activity. In Athletics, to the number of four for the Boys Basket Ball Team, five for the Girls Basket Ball Team; so winning the High School championship in Basket Ball class games on March 12, which great victory was celebrated with a “Weenie Roast” and a “Watch-Fire”, visible for a long distance. In Literary lines, to the number of one for debating one for declamatory, and five for the “Spud” Staff. In the orchestra! we have three members and we exhibited our artistic talents further in a remarkable manner by the staging of “In a College Town” during the Thanksgiving holidays.
Needless to state we have great hopes of future success. Our class, we hope, may furnish the very best example of a graduating class and shall stand as a precedent to all coming classes. For we shall have delegates at every scholastic meet, so making our class one long to be remembered.
In all, as Juniors, we are proud of our achievements, giving due thanks to our class sponsor, Miss Sherdeman, and as Seniors, we have aspirations still higher with regard to benefitting the Alliance High School.
If Diamond Dyes will September Morn?”
Scooper—Arthur T. Hadley, president of Yale, said of youth at a tea in New Haven:
“I find youth modest, almost over-modest. I don’t agree with the accepted idea of youth that is epitomized in the anecdote.
According to this anecdote, an old man said to a youth :
“ ‘My boy, when I was your age I thought, like you, that I knew it all, but now I have reached the conclusion that I know nothing.’ ”
“ ‘Hm! I reached that conclusion about you years ago.’ ”

On a bright September morning In the year of 1912 Came a bunch of loyal Freshmen
To the High School, there to delve.
Thus the class of ’16, starting,
Grew and grew and grew until They were Sophomores, true and loyal In the High School on the hill.
At first we numbered over fity
Laughing girls and jolly boys,
Now, alas, we number forty,
But these good students sure are joys.
Our sponsor, Miss Canfield you know,
Is sure a dandy, with lots of go Altho a sneak day she did not permit,
She is right there when it comes to grit.
This passed we th eFreshman year And we became Sophomores.
We studied then of Caesar
On far and distant shores.
In assembly we had not a very good name,
For stunts were pulled off, and slippers the same,
Which surely will ruin the High School’s good fame.
Our class colors, the Pink and the White,
We will guard and protect with all of our might.
And when into Juniors and Seniors we grow The class of ’16 will not be found slow 22.

I he freshmen Class of 1917, have now completed one year of High School work.
Several of our girls entered into athletics and were strong enough in this work, new to them, to almost wholly comprise the second team in Basket Ball. The boys also showed their ability in this sport.
On April 3, a Freshman program entitled “Gartenhaus” was rendered and proved quite effective. The play typified an old fashioned school, Howard Bennett taking the part of the “professor” and about twenty-five Freshmen the parts of pupils. “Opening Exercises” consisted of a song “Gartenhaus” abundantly and cleverly illustrated by car toons. Then followed English and Geography classes, in which all distinguished themselves. Probably the most applauded feature was the cartoons. These were designed and drawn by Jeanette Haney.
Three members of the Freshmen class, Mable Grassman, Neva Howe, and Tressa Vandervoort, entered the declamatory contest. Mable Grassman won first place in Humorous in local contest.
On March 18, a meeting was called and the class colors were changed from Old Rose and Cream to Green and White. The reason being that the former colors so closely resembled those of the sophomores.
Thanks are owed to our perservering class sponsor Miss Keech, who has aided us in every enterprise and encouraged us in all our undertakings.
Not His Bunch—A Sunday-school teacher was quizzing her class of boys on the strength of their desire for righteousness.
“All those who wish to go to heaven,” she said, “please stand.”
All got to their feet but one small boy.
“Why, Johnny,” exclaimed the shocked teacher, “do you mean to say that you don’t want to go to heaven?”
“No, ma’am,” replied Johnny promptly. “Not if that bunch is going.”—Delineator.THE SPUD

The District Debate was held at Alliance, April 28. Sidney having defeated Minatare and Rushville not being in the league, the final contest was Sidney vs. Alliance, Alliance taking the affirmative. The debating team was as follows: Michael Nolan, ’14, Nell Tash, ’15,
Max Wilcox, ’14, and Marion Mote, ’16, alternate, winners in every sense of the word.
The debate took place in the High School auditorium with the result that Alliance won, the decision made by the judges Mr. Sparks of Chadron, Miss Thompson of Bridgeport, Mr. Marrs of Bridgeport, being 2-1 in our favor.
The Sidney team was comprised of Roy Greenlee, Kenneth Bassett, and Marius Christienson, a bunch of splendid speakers.
The judges selected Michael Nolan as the individual debator to represent the Northwestern district at the state contest at Lincoln on May 16th.THE SPUD

An appropriation of about $300 was aw arded to 20 schools in the state of Nebraska for the maintenance of a Business Course in connection with the High School.
Alliance being a progressive city in the western part of the state, was one of these schools and has found a remarkable opening for its new department.
Two rooms, in connection with each other serve for this branch, being fully equipped with the most modern means of work and under the supervision of an excellent instructor Miss Wilson of Bethany, Nebraska; this study is insured unusual success by this excellent beginning.
Knew Her Rights—“I tell you I won’t have this room,” protested the old lady to the boy in buttons who was conducting her. “I ain’t goin’ to pay my money for a pigsty with a measly litle foldin’ bed in it.
If you think that just because I’m from the country--------------”
Profoundly disgusted, the boy cut her short. “Get in, mum, get in,” he ordered. “This ain’t yer room. This is the elevator.”Since the year 1910, Manual Art for the Boys of the High Schol has been a most successful line of work.
The shop, located in the new Emerson Building is modern in every respect and has been subject to much praise because of its arrangement and the high style of work accomplished by the class. Besides, following the regular outline work, the classes in this art have aided the Domestic Science department, enlarged the Agriculture equipment, furnished the Girls of the Basket Ball Team with cups and completed individual orders.
Under the instructions of Mr. Clements of Elmwood, Nebraska, the Manual Training Class has been made to accomplish unu«ual work and meet with extraordinary success during the past year.
. I? 1 10’ was the Domestic Science course, also, introduced into the High School with headquarters on the third floor of the building and with tables, stoves, and dishes to accommodate twenty girls.
After the rebuilding of the Central Grammar School, a new suite of rooms was provided for this work including the kitchen with its usual supplies and a serving room furnished by the Manual Training department.
Following the cooking course by outline and studying the care of the Sick in the Home, is only a part of the experience afforded the girls who choose this branch-for a noon lunch Is served every day m the Spring to the patrons of the school- a Christmas Banquet was served in the English room just before the Holidays; and after a program given by the Grammar pupils at the Central Building a luncheon was partaken of by the visitors, who received the best attention of the “cooks”.
Miss Georgia Canfield has been in charge of this up-to-date department and has taught in the most modern method.THE SPUI)

Boy’s Basket Ball
In the Basket ball season just closed our boys were successful in many ways, if not in winning the pennant.
While in the eastern part of the state the A. H. S. boys showed the people there that we had a mighty gritty bunch.
Out of fifteen games played we won seven and forfeited one.
Base ball season has opened with a bright outlook for a fast team.
As Mr. Clements will be unable to coach the team, Orville Davenport was appointed assistant coach, and from the looks of things will turn out a speedy bunch. With Darnell in the box and himself behind the bat as well as several of the former teams’ men in good shape we are hopeful of much.
We have prospects of at least three games and returns, and we certainly hope to make this season a successful one in every way.
With the coming of spring came the spirit for tennis. The courts are in excellent condition and will be kept that way all summer for the benefit of the members,
There are nearly twenty members from the various classes. And it is hoped that we may soon start a class tournament. And the best players in the high school will compete in a high school tournament.
Teacher “Did you look over this lesson?” Boy “Yes, Sir.”
Teacher “Well, look at it, next time.”THE SPUD
Girl's Basket Ball
The first game of the season was played at Scottsbluff. The S. H. S. had a good team but were unable to keep up with the A. H. S. girls who were winners in every respect. The final score was 23 to 20.
The Kimball game at Alliance was the second victory of the season for the A. H. S. girls. Kimball had a good team but the Alliance girls were so much swifter that Kimball lost out in the beginning and was unable to catch up. The score was 33 to 9.
On Feb. 20 our girls won the third victory of the season at Sidney, by the decisive score of 15 to 41. The A. H. S. girls played an exceptionally good game and Sidney tried to follow but, in vain. The score convinced the S. H. S. that Alliance, too, had a team and they were compelled to admit that Alliance team work was excellent.
Feb. 21, the Alliance girls again defeated Kimball by a score of 25 to 15. Kimball played their usual fast, clean game but were outclassed in every respect by their opponents.
Feb. 28, Scottsbluff was again beaten by the Alliance team. Having the advantage of the home floor our girls easily outclassed the visiting team and closed the game with a score of 42 to 12.
The last game of the season was played at Chadron, with the Chad-ron Normal team. This team had defeated the champions of eastern Wyoming but they soon realized that Alliance was not so easily handled and the final score was 15 to 20 in favor of Alliance.
This season has been one of the most successful ones on record as it has left the A. H. S. girls undefeated champions of Western Nebraska. The skillful team-work shown by the girls was largely due to the excellent training given by their coach, Mr. Clements.
At the close of the season the members of the team presented the coach with a handsome stick-pin in appreciation of his services and were in turn presented with hand turned “A” cups, the work of the Manuel Training Department.
The instructor of the gymnasium class organized two base ball teams during the spring months with Nellie Wright captain of one and Helen Hewett captain of the other. The semi-weekly gymnasium periods were devoted to practice and the girls did excellent work.38.
